This thread is for our new joiners - help us welcome you aboard by saying Hej! Don't give us your private details, but share a little! What's your best beloved IKEA product?
(Tip: you can hashtag it to bring up our stock image).
I'll start. I'm Adam, I'm one of the team IKEA assembled to create this space. My favourite IKEA project would be a simple one, the sadly discontinued #Knotten - a nifty stand-up desk in a corner of my living room that I've been using as we created the Community space.
Here's a pic:
Hej all, I'm Alvyn! If I had to choose, my UPPLAND (Sofa) would be my favorite IKEA product (no pictures because I spilled orange juice on it last week..). Let's pretend this is my home:
I'll see if I can get some photos of our 5 cube Expedit shelves. Over 10 years they have functioned as a sideboard, dresser, bench, and they're now the base of my bed.
My 4 cube Expedit and Kallax shelves have been a changing table, TV stand, mobile garden and now, I've stacked all three of them (there's a 5cm gap from the ceiling) to use for vertical storage.
Hej Snevyl. This was a combination of moving to a new place (and not having a way to see the recipes I was cooking) and the IKEA inspiration of an iPad stand on the KUNGSFORS wall rack. In fact the entire KUNGSFORS installation in the kitchen started from the need to have an iPad showing the recipe. And it went from there... More storage for my spices, a way to pull my knives out of the much-needed drawer space and get them handy over the work space, and a shelf to put my grains and pulses. I even have a handy hook to put my elastics on now.
Hej! Happy to be a part of this. I've been going to IKEA since the Richmond store opened (1976). I love lots of the IKEA products we have but I'm partial to the Ivar shelving we bought over 40 years ago. Friends gave us an IKEA gift card for a wedding present as they knew our joint collection would be large, even then. This summer we bought some different, deeper shelving (12 bookcases/sets of shelves) as hubby's retiring & bringing books home. In the rearranging I found 6 boxes of my books that hadn't been shelved since we bought our home. It's all a work in progress but getting there. 🙂
We're happy that you're a part of this too! Welcome to the community. When you get the chance, show us the final result of your project. It sounds very interesting and that IKEA gift card came in clutch.
Hej! I'm Stephanie.
I am very much loving my new living room. Still waiting for a few things (supply issues) but I actually don't mind the wait time. It's been fun to see it come together slowly. Right now I'm loving my new MORABO (Sofa) and #RANDBÖL. Here it is, all with real life kid mess !)
Welcome to the community Steph and for the picture. I also know how it can get with kids in a short amount of time. I like the sofa, especially the colour you chose. I think it goes well with the decor and the lamp next to it.
Hi, I’m Sara!
I’m currently renovating a 115 year old house using IKEA, DIY, and thrifting.
my favourite product so far (that I’ve used in several different rooms) is the HYLLIS (Shelf unit). All sizes. We’ve tweaked them here and there like in this pantry! You’ll also notice an abundance ofKORKEN (Jar with lid)
My absolutely favourite IKEA item is our MALM pull up storage bed. I love how it is like a secret compartment that is hidden for our storage as opposed to obvious drawers on the side which makes it harder to open if you have nightstands on each side! MALM (Pull up storage bed )
Hi everyone! My name is Paulina & I'm a big fan of the HEMNES (Bookcase) collection. (not just the bookcases, but the hashtags made me choose).
Anyway, I have several Hemnes pieces in the natural wood colour as well as the nice red, both options which have sadly since been discontinued. If the wood collection was still available I would have loved to update my bedroom set but alas. At least I have the beautiful HEMNES (Desk) & hopefully I'll get lucky finding the dressers second hand someday.
I actually was able to find my HEMNES (Bookcase) second hand - I have three total, one for books, and two that neatly house all my games and puzzles. 😊
I've shopped at Ikea for years. We spent 7 hours in Ikea, picking out everything for my new room when I was 15 (~1995). Later, when I moved to Belgium, all our stuff came from Ikea there, too. We brought back as much of it as we could and I still have a lot of it.
My favorite piece is my 3-piece mirrored wardrobe. I can't find it online anymore and don't remember the name. It's been with me since I was 15 and even survived falling over once. My daughter is 12 and still won't give up her Barnslig decor/accessories/stuffies
I'm moving again soon (locally) and can't wait to see what new stuff I might 'need' lol.
